CT Bank Employee Charged With Workers' Compensation Fraud


Hartford, CT (CompNewsNetwork) - A bank account representative was arrested today and charged with collecting workers' compensation benefits for a reported on-the-job injury that actually occurred at home.

Kathryn A. Levitt, age 52, of 404 Halfway House Rd., Windsor Locks, was charged with Fraudulent Claim or Receipt of Benefits, a class B felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Ms. Levitt collected more than $4,500 in disability and medical benefits for a November 2006 injury that she claimed occurred at TD Banknorth, where she was employed as an account representative, but that actually happened at home.

The charge against Ms. Levitt is merely an accusation, and she is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Ms. Levitt was released on $2,500 bond and will be arraigned in New Britain Superior Court, G.A. No. 15, on July 6, 2010.

The case will be prosecuted by the Workers' Compensation Fraud Control Bureau of the Chief State's Attorney's Office in Rocky Hill.
